Sebastian Bates, founder of the Warrior Academy and host of the Warrior Academy Podcast, shares a short chapter from his book, “Not a Victim.” Written in 2021, this book aims to assist parents in mentoring their children through the challenging transition of bullying. In this chapter, Sebastian emphasizes the importance of recognizing bullying as a transitional experience and provides insights into its long-term impact on a child’s character.

3. Bullying as a Positive Force: -Interviews successful individuals attributing a part of their success to experiences with bullying. – Stresses the importance of context and appropriate mentorship for viewing bullying as a positive driving force.
4. Reactive vs Proactive Parenting: – Observes that many parents reactively respond to bullying, waiting until their child experiences it before taking action. – Advocates for proactive preparation to empower children in facing life’s challenges independently.
5. Child’s Silence About Bullying: – Highlights the likelihood that a child may not disclose their experience of bullying, even with a strong parent-child relationship. – Emphasizes the importance of being proactive and prepared, considering the possibility of undisclosed bullying.
6. Trauma and Bullying Severity: – Challenges the notion that the severity of bullying determines its trauma. – Stresses the significance of a child’s ability to feel, heal, and cope with bullying, irrespective of its severity.
7. Teasing vs Bullying: – Debunks the idea that teasing is harmless by emphasizing that the intention behind it doesn’t predict the hurt caused. – Argues that the impact depends on the tolerance of the person receiving it.
